Our recent torturers come to town next

Is it a win or bust game ?

League positions make it a 4 pointer ? We play them 3 times and we must win 2/3 in order to stay around the Top 4

For me - we have to win

The players basically took the p**s against Saints by having an afternoon off

So are we due for a ‘performance’ ?

Really hope so






I have lost interest

You've probebly the best chance of beating them possible. Chester reckons 75% of the total salary is sitting in the benches injured, and they don't spend up to cap. Half of the forwards are missing, and most of the backs are either out or playing out of position.






Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

IF the above is near true then surely we are due a win

11 out of the starting 17 are out injured, plus some squad players. Fifita also looked crocked in both of the Easter games. It's from Chesters Post Leeds match interview, it's available on various social media outlets

I understand why your nervous with Wakefield’s recent record against you and your own inconsistency but don’t be. Usually believe every game is winnable and injuries are not an excuse in a squad game but in this case I’ll have to make an exception.

I hope we can win but when your points scorers and try makers are all crocked it’s hard. It’s not to say their replacements are poor far from it but it takes time to gel.

All you need to do is be slightly better than Leeds and you’ll win easily and you must want to after recent results against us. If you don’t then you need to ask serious question about your team.

and people said that our pessimism and then subsequent results last year were not down to injuries, and they shouldn't be used as an excuse.

Which 11 are missing and what team do you expect to play?

He didn't say it was an excuse but it is a factor. If you have no recognised no9 for example as may be the case this week you are clearly at a disadvantage, to say otherwise is ridiculous, so to a point it is an excuse. Having players out is bad for any team, missing all your players in certain positions is a massive factor.

As far as I can tell Trinity have one recognised centre and no hooker. They are doing it tough but they won't be the first or the last, player resources are finite even at clubs like Saints.
